After Hours Mixers are monthly networking opportunities for Chamber members to meet, mix, and mingle. Mixers are hosted by a different member each month, each offering a unique look into the variety of businesses available in the Watkins Glen area, and usually take place from 5-7pm. Most 2019 After Hours Mixers are sponsored by Elmira Savings Bank, so there is no fee to attend.

Event registration begins at 6:00 pm, followed by time to mix and mingle until a short program at 7:00 pm commences on the central yard in the Park. During the program, attendees will hear from Chamber President and CEO Rebekah Carroll, and representatives from each of the participating businesses. The floor will also be open to members to share their news and announcements. Have something coming up you want to share? Just raise your hand and the floor is yours!
When the program concludes, attendees can go back to catching up with colleagues, networking with new business connections, and learning more about the following, participating businesses:
Schooner Excursions, Inc.
Captain Bills / Seneca Harbor Station
Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel
The Village Marina Bar & Grill
Summit to Stream Adventures
Chamber President and CEO Rebekah Carroll adds, “While all our After Hours Mixers are a great blend of fun, networking and learning about fellow member businesses, our Waterfront Mixers are among my favorite, enabling all of us to take a moment, appreciate our beautiful harbor and lake, and learn about so many fascinating member businesses, while enjoying great food and beverages. Please note that to try and help more members be able to attend this entire mixer, the hours will be from 6-8pm, an hour later than usual, this one time.”
The Mixer Prize will be a gift basket featuring donated items and experiences from each of the participating businesses, and both Schooner Excursions and Captain Bill’s will be offering $10 off hourly sightseeing cruises taking place during the mixer. Seneca Harbor Station, Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, and The Village Marina will all offer a cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres, while Summit to Steam Adventures will offer dessert. Please note, this event will take place rain or shine! In the event of inclement weather, we'll move under cover to the Village Marina for the program at 7:00 pm.
